After a some silence we have gotten some audio from the tech house virtuoso. With a few edits here and there after Sloans Dress and collab work, eekkoo releases Just days apart a remix and a new original. We are first greeted with the original piece Cleopatra, filled with beautiful melody like the snake mistress’s gaze sucking you in to dark bassline as cold as stone. Following that, a remix for the techno cats pouncing the dance floors with Hanover by Jeremy Olander, with a playful melody and bass that purrs. Doing justice for the original track. Eekkoo seems to be picking up some activity with podcasts and the recent work, cannot wait to see what else he has coming up.
As Autograf sets off on their latest tour with Goldroom after much preparation from their visual setup to their setlist, they continue documenting themselves on their touring experience. To top off the start of their tour they grab straight from their playlist Future Sauce, releasing this ingredient from the tour for their audience at home to enjoy. This Sauce put you on a balance of ambient and night bass vibes with a harmonious piano prelude and a heavy bassline to top it off. A turn from their previous track Don’t Worry, adding variety and energy to their playlist.
“Qandisa is a Moroccan goddess of love and lust. And that’s dichotomous. By definition in dichotomy everything in two subsets must belong to one part or the other and at the same time nothing can belong simultaneously to both parts. That should be the case with love and lust. In love there’s got to be lust, while lust itself can exist without love.”
A beautiful description of the title EP Dichotomy by Umek. Just two tracks to add to your playlist, the title track and Qandisa, the goddess. But every bit is ever so addicting. Umek is truly a King among Techno house artists if there is not one already. One that treats his fans nicely. All over 2 million of them get a nice preview for Christmas of his upcoming track Console Generation.
Letkolben is making a return with a couple recent remixes up on his soundcloud. From Nürnberg, Berlin this artist has a unique twist on techno and deep house. Adding a lot of tribal sounds and instruments his tracks really put you into an animalistic vibe. With seemingly endless amounts of originals and remixes on his soundcloud Giovanni Molinaro and on a separate remix Nic Bax, fellow techno house producers, were in the scope of this artist this time. With Letkolben’s most recent original released earlier in the year, hopefully these new remixes foreshadow an new release!
The magnificent and mysterious eekkoo has produced yet another powerful production in deep house and techno after releasing a handful of remixes and collabs. Not straying away from his moody personality in his music, he creates some downright heavy basslines with grooves unheard of with Sloan’s Dress. To really set the mood of the track we grabbed the video clip from eekkoo’s facebook profile with the main bassline over some hollow synths to preview before you take on the full track.
Caleb Cornett AKA Amtrac takes to facebook to tease his fans with new music from his upcoming Lost In Motion EP. Releasing Darkest Sound onto soundcloud, the first peak at his new project, served as a prelude of previews. Tuning into Pomo on Majestic Casual’s Beats 1 Dec. 12th show gave you the opportunity to listen in on another track from the new EP. Long Nights, previewed shortly above, features Amtrac himself on vocals and promises to be nothing short of amazing.
Speaking of amazing tracks, Amtrac is not only working on his EP, he is also remixing music by amazing artists. Establishing his name as a versatile producer and remix artist. Recently Caleb connect with Doe Paoro, who was open to having her pop track Nostalgia remixed. Turning the track into a moody deep house, Caleb left the artists lyrics in the entrance to set the tone for the rest of the track. Ending on uplifting synth work truely making for a nostalgic feel.
Finally we have this. Nero, after a hiatus, awes the world with their return from the studio emerging with Satisfy, followed by their full album Between II Worlds. A project meant to be a real collaboration of mind and talent of the trio rather than short lived hyped material. In comes Amtrac to deconstruct the tune and give it the energy for the club floor. With vocals from Neros vocalist Alana Watson echoing through out, the synths an percussion carry this tune with trance like atmosphere. All this new music from Amtrac is what keeps us going till the full EP is released!

There is always a very smooth balance between old school house music and contemporary. But when he drops those basslines its over. You will not stop wigglin.
Each song gets progressively better as it goes back and forth between highs and lows. As you get a feel of the album, your soul starts to feel it by the time Heartbeat kicks in with the smooth vocals of Nathan Nicholson. Building energy with Peter, Björn and John on vocals in Puppet Theatre into the groovy Leave Your Light with Young Galaxy. Claptone has picked some unique talent for this album, they work perfectly and there is a bunch more down the tracklist. Jaw, Jay Jay Johnson, Jimi Tenor, Bavanandan to name a few. Yea by the 13th track you will have fallen in love with this, Charmer LP.

It was a matter of time but eekkoo has broken the bonds between him and mau5trap records to go onto new horizons. Since Joel AKA Deadmau5 has called upon eekkoo to work with him for his skillful production, eekkoo has been releasing some of greatest techno you will hear out of one artist! But with all that knowledge in music production, mau5trap records was only the beginning step to a stairway to great success!
One of his first releases on a new label eekkoo takes ANNA‘s Drum Machines Do Have Soul from Turbo Recording and gives it a darker sound with chopped vocals, downdriving basslines and analog synths. With original mix the Killing, eekkoo keeps the techno on the uptempo side with claps, hihats and choppy vocals. This hypnotizing dance track is out for a free download, sort of a courtesy.
Most recently, eekkoo has made another remix. This time he joins Anjunadeep family for this release. On the 23th of October Lane 8 released a remix album of his house track Undercover featuring Matthew Dear.
